What’s New On Netflix In October – Top 5 Originals


The lockdown has been really testing. Especially for the singletons. We’re actually pretty fine on our own, if it weren’t for all the ‘netflix-and-chill’ suggestions going about around us. I mean, who really is focusing on Netflix when you’re obviously in it for the chill?

Hey Netflix. We’re doing you a favour. And listing out top 5 Netflix originals we’d be catching up to this month. Sole focus on the shows. No chill. 

Start-Up

Quite an awaited Korean offering. The series follows Se Dal Mi – a University drop out, who now wants to get out of her part-time gig to become the next Steve Jobs. Next scene – enter Nam Do-San – the founder of Samsan Tech (cheeky eh?). They both fall in love, couple up to become a rather unconventional pairing but perfect when it comes to cheering each other on their respective journeys in the dicey world of business. 

Song Exploder – How Music Gets Made

Featuring the likes of music geniuses like Alicia Keys, Lin-Manuel Miranda, R.E.M., and Ty Dolla $ign. The Netflix docu-series has these names talking about how they became the names to reckon with that they are today. Inspired by a hit podcast of the same name, the series (whose first volume is out early October) will have artists talk about what makes them click, how they churn out their hit tunes and what thoughts haunt them in the process and after. 

To the Lake

For those who’ve watched the trailer, we don’t need any more convincing. 

For those who haven’t, this show seems to be as timely and telling of modern times (and hopefully not of times to come) as it can get. In the face of a plague that threatens civilisation as we know it, no one is spared. From school-going children being mercilessly put down to all past love, loyalty and allegiance now being put to test, this Russian drama is solid. Doesn’t seem like an easy watch. 

The Queen’s Gambit 

Netflix Originals

Given the times we live in, from what we read this docu-series seems to tick all the right boxes. Presenting an inspiring tale from history? Check. Promising adaptation of a book? Check! Strong, gritty female protagonist? Check! Follow the story of eight-year old orphan Beth Harmon as she transforms from being a quiet, mellow young girl to a passionate and sharp chess player who goes out to compete in the US Open Championship. All in the tense Cold War Era. Based on the 1983 novel of the same name. 

Social Distance

This one we can all relate to. A bit too well. The pandemic has forced us all to rethink. Redesign. Reinvent. And Re-everything. Amongst all, it has forced us to redefine happiness. This anthology narrates just that. Putting together a single series, woven by different bits and tales from all across the globe. Of how people stayed connected. Or struggled to. Sometimes funny, sometimes dark. 

P.S. Damn excited to see Oscar from the Office make an appearance in the trailer. UN-BE-LIE-VABLE.
